Profile / Bio: 

Colin Philp is the Resort Manager at Leleuvia Island Resort and the President of the Uto ni Yalo Trust. Colin is a sailor and a sail maker by trade who ran a successful manufacturing business as well as a chain of surf shops throughout Fiji for a number of years before deciding he needed a change and opportunity came knocking when he was asked to run Leleuvia in 2011. Colin’s affinity to the ‘vanua’ (land) and ‘waitui’ (ocean) especially the latter had him involved in the Fiji Islands Voyaging Society in 2009 (now named the Uto ni Yalo Trust). Colin, ever the entrepreneur, still owns and runs a small canvas and distribution business, which sells biodegradable cleaning products. He is passionate about environmental and marine conservation and is the co-chair of the Duavata Sustainable Tourism Collective.
